"Over my dead body you're getting on that plane, you hear that?" -Nigel

"Wishful thinking." -Naomi

Nigel was an abusive, misogynistic pig of a husband who was trying to stop Naomi, his soon-to-be ex-wife from leaving him by climbing into the cargo bay of his wife's plane (which he was easily able to do, as airport security prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks was not as tight) while his wife threw away her wedding ring before boarding. Nigel was unaware at first but when the door was sealed, so was his fate. The atmospheric temperature drops as the plane rises. His skin was also freezing as he screamed for help when nobody came to his aid and the plane was at the cruising height, and by -50 degrees Fahrenheit, he eventually dies of hypothermia and asphyxia, bringing his abuse literally to a dead stop.
